Use a scimitar 12inch
Or a nkce soft steel 10inch gyuto

Soft steel and longer is bettter for taking an entire side off
Stiff as well

I just use a 240+ to take off skin and portion
You think a kanehide tk 240 would do?

Re: Can't get my Kohetsu AS knife as sharp as others

Curious why I can't get the same hair splitting edge on my Kohetsu AS 240 that I can on my yuki. I understand they're different steels (white 2 vs as) but I didn't think that would make as large of a difference. I use an edge pro with the standard stones and then strop on a leather paddle.

Is the extra thick needed? Cant find that?

It will be your most used stone and is a good value: double the stone for half more.

Re: Can't get my Kohetsu AS knife as sharp as others

I understand they are different grinds but that shoulf have minimal effect on things like chives. If I were to get Shapton glass, what progression do you suggest. I also have a Matsubara ginsan, and kono hd to sharpen. --- SG500 extra-thick, 2k & 8k or 16k Is the extra thick needed? Cant find that?

Re: Can't get my Kohetsu AS knife as sharp as others

By hair splitting are you referring to hanging hair, or are you just using it to express something feeling very sharp? More of hair shaving. It doesn't feel as sharp when I feel the edge. It certainly doesn't cut as well. Chives will spring off the voard perfectly with the yuki, whereas the Kohetsu...

Re: Can't get my Kohetsu AS knife as sharp as others

I am sharpening at the same angle. I'm thinking maybe ill give it try at a lower grit and then strop. Will test this week and come back. I really only use it as a meat slicing knife and a slicer on the line. I may trade it all together for a slicer

Re: Bunka, Nakiri or Santoku

I will always pick a bunka with a nice flat spot over a nakiri. If you want to stay in the same line get the yuki bunka. Its one of my knives. It gets crazy sharp with almost no effort. With that said, you should learn how to sharpen. The yuki would be a great confidence builder.

I've been looking with one with more of a robust grind that has an aggressive taper. The matsubara might be the ticket.
I will let you in know on Friday:)
Any updates, curious about the Matsubara.
